Okay, so with all these specification rumours now floating around the 'net for Nintendo's forthcoming next-gen console Revolution, we can't help but ponder what exactly we'll be playing when the machine burst from the loins of secrecy at E3 next year.
Obviously, being Nintendo, it's a no-brainer that we'll be seeing its big-name franchises at some point over the console's lifespan - so that's Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart, Metroid and Smash Bros. covered then (with Revolution follow-ups already confirmed for most of those anyway).
However, as part of its current Revolution splurge, IGN has initial word on a couple of new titles which are frankly news - and exciting news at that - to our ears.
Firstly, it seems that Animal Crossing DS producer Katsuya Eguchi has confirmed that a Revolution sequel is currently in development. With Nintendo's Wi-Fi connection service set to play a huge role in its next-gen home console offering, it's a fair bet that the village visiting antics of the handheld version will make a return. What's more, Eguchi also suggests that both versions of the game might feature link-up functionality similar to that of GBA's Animal Island, downloadable in the GameCube offering.
A bit less fluffy, but no less exciting, is that Suda 51 (or Gouichi Suda as he's probably known to his mother), producer on Killer 7 over at Grasshopper, is full of praise for the Revolution controller. Not content with simply splurging love on Nintendo's gaming biscuit though, Suda has confirmed that the developer is currently finalising plans for an "extreme" Revolution title. Apparently the secret title will focus heavily on the unique aspects of the controller for input. Notch that one up on the "ones to watch" list then, in light of the brilliant but misunderstood Killer 7.
Hopefully these announcements signify a steady opening of the floodgates where Revolution information is involved. Roll on E3 2006 is what we say.
